    What has caused the ISU jinx?

    What has ISU done to upset the Gods? Is it one of the following?

    1) We didn't protect Jack Trice?
    2) We didn't appreciate Earle Bruce?
    3) We didn't hire/promote John Cooper, Mack Brown, or Pete Carroll when we had the chance?
    4) We didn't give Larry Eustachy due process?

    Re: What has caused the ISU jinx?

    We needed to make one more play a bunch of times. That's what caused the defeats.
    Jinxes aren't real. Just an excuse for something to blame when we didn't get the job done.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    5) We make threads on CF about starting McGee/Booker and questioning Hoiberg. No sports god likes an armseat coach.

    I don't know, but I am positive that Bruce Van De Velde had something to do with it.

    Firing Wayne Morgan prematurely and giving Greg McDermott a 9 year contract.

    Or what Erik said.

    I'm the jinx, ISU will never take the big step while I breathe air. Maybe I should take a bullet for Cyclone Nation.

    This stuff predates you. Might as well keep living for a while. Save the bullet for the "calling out Mr. Hoiberg" thread.

    Re: What has caused the ISU jinx?

    I used to think we were jinxed as well, but then the following happened:

    Getting 9 turnovers to beat kNU at kNU
    Beating #2 Oklahoma State
    Beating Minnesota in the Insight Bowl on a miracle fumble
    Scotty "thug life" with his buzzer beater against OK State last year
    Royce White leading the Cyclones to big wins over Kansas, Kansas St (2x) and UConn

    Cyclones have had extremely bad luck in in the past few months.

    Woody fumble against WVU when Holiday Bowl was on the line
    Kansas bankshot
    OK State bankshot
    Texas last night

    wait... maybe the jinx just began on the woody fumble? we're doomed.

    Has anybody else ever heard the Van and Bonnie theory?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: What has caused the ISU jinx?

    College basketball and football are games of momentum and confidence. If we had pulled out the KU game, TT probably never happens. Pull off OSU and UT might not happen. This stuff happens, and tends to snowball until they pull one or two out.
